Man, you're old.

All together now, Happy Birthday Brooklyn Bridge!

This Memorial Day weekend, Brooklyn and Manhattan will celebrate the Bridge’s 125th anniversary with a host of events honoring the structure’s historic and cultural significance. It should be a pretty fun time this long weekend. One particular art event that I'm going to want to check out is the Telectroscope.

The Telectroscope: A Window Through the World: Discover the long-forgotten transatlantic tunnel between London and Brooklyn with the Telectroscope. Artist Paul St. George’s public media project is an amazing optical device that allows viewers in Brooklyn to see all the way to London. Through June 15. Free. (On Old Fulton Street at Fulton Ferry Landing, Brooklyn)

Read on for more information about the free festivities, go to the Official Guide for a complete schedule.

I'll go when ever you wanna go as long as I'm not sick.

Sounds good. It's up for awhile. Perhaps we'll arrange a meeting with some folk in London and see how real time it actually is.

it reminds me of Nam June Paik installation from the late 70's where they did that with no fancy sculptures
